The global supply chain for thousands of companies runs through China.  China presents a number of issues including: 1.) Intellectual Property Theft, 2.) Process Transparency, 3.) Production Status, and many more issues.  IP theft is a major issue related to investment and capital spend.  In addition, the lack of transparency inside the business ecosystem in China creates blind spots for companies trying to regulate factors such as supply and demand.  ThreatMinder can scan local Internet access within mainland China to find potential issues.
